Welcome to A Blinding Light. I’m Ming, a 30 something wife and mother. I’m partially sighted and registered Severely Sight Impaired (blind). When we decided to start a family, I hung up my heels and said a fond farewell to my 12 hour a day corporate job. I’m now a Mum to two beautiful girls and my job includes everything from cooking and cleaning to building dens and doing jigsaws. Occasionally, I’m lucky enough to spend time with friends, and we usually go for dinner and drinks, afternoon tea or some other activity which centres around eating. Food is one of my favourite things, along with ballet, reading and travelling. My husband and I both love to travel and see life as an adventure. We hope to show our daughters how to appreciate this exciting world, the opportunities it presents and how much they can learn from all the different people in it.
As my vision has deteriorated, I have realised how lucky I am in other areas and how grateful I feel for all the many things in my life that are good. The support I have received from others has sparked a desire to give back and make a difference in some way. I hope that writing this blog will bring joy or at least provoke thought for someone, somewhere, in some small way. Living with sight loss means you never stop learning and I am learning to cultivate the best life I can for me and my family. I hope that life is one of grace and compassion, with plenty of opportunities for adventure.
The hope is that sharing my experiences and the things I learn, will encourage others to do the same and that this blog will be a space where that can happen. Thank you so much for checking in, I hope you enjoy your visit here and that you come back again. X
